Planning a Sensational Spring Break

Planning a Sensational Spring Break

Depending on where you live, winter might still be in full swing. But, even if there’s currently snow on the ground and you’re huddled up by the fire with blankets, you can take comfort in knowing that Spring is just around the corner.

And, of course, that means Spring break! People have different ideas of what a Spring break trip should really be. But, whether you want to go on a solo adventure, with someone you love, or you’re ready to load up the whole family, there are a few things you should remember to do before you hit the road.

In this two-part blog series, we’ll cover a few of the essential planning tips you should start thinking about now, so you can enjoy your Spring break vacation without a hitch.

Build Your Budget

The first step to planning any trip is to create a budget you can work with. You want to be able to enjoy yourself while you’re away, but not at the “expense” of your bank account. Your budget should include things like:

●Lodging costs

●Gas

●Food

●Activities

It’s also a good idea to have extra cash on hand for emergencies. After all, you never know what’s going to happen on the road.

Spring break is a great time to plan a trip with friends. If that’s the case, you can work out your budget a bit differently by planning your trip and how much everything will cost, and then decided to split those costs evenly among your group.

Whatever the case, having a budget will help you to feel more comfortable on your trip. You’ll be able to return home without having to worry about how much money you have left, or if you “overspent” when you shouldn’t have.

Picking the Right Spot

When most people think of Spring break, sunny beaches and popular tourist attractions come to mind. Again, if you’ve been living in a snowy, cold climate for months, hitting the beach can feel like a dream!

But, the problem with many tropical locations is that they’re often crowded during Spring break. There’s a good reason for that, since it can feel like stepping into paradise when you go to certain beaches and resorts.

But, if you want to avoid the crowds and have a more unique Spring break experience, start up the RV and go on a road trip to some of the country’s less-traditional Spring break destinations. It’s a great time to visit historic sites around the country. Or, go camping in the mountains and enjoy some beautiful weather and scenery on hiking trails!

The beaches will always be there, and there are plenty of other times you can go throughout the year when they’ll be less crowded. Remember, your vacation is about relaxing and enjoying yourself. Determine which type of environment would allow you to do that most.

So, your budget is set and you’ve decided on the perfect destination. What’s next? There’s still plenty to do to prepare yourself for the perfect Spring break.
